can any of down payment come from student grant money?

i work but my husband quit 2 years ago and is earning an accelerated B.S. full time. My income ($84k) is enough to qualify us as far as i know, but for down payment we'd really like to use some of his grants. how can we do this?

Hi Crystal, Most Government assistance programs have income limits or Caps that are less than you are currently making. There are some programs out there, depending on area, that have higher income limits that you may qualify for. Feel free to give us a call at 936-228-1944.

There is a grant to help get into homes, not the student one, that is brand new. Please follow up by email to yourloanpartnerforlife@live.com linda

If the grant money is in your account, and has been in there for 2 to 3 months, then it's not an issue because the lender will never ask, but if it hasn't been in there for that time, then it can be an issue.. this is called "funds seasoning", and it's required by the lender to verify the source of down payment funds.. but they only have to go back 30 to 60 days depending on the loan product your applying for.. and any deposits over $500 have to be documented.. I'm a Broker here in Scottsdale AZ and I only lend in Arizona. If you or someone you know is looking for financing options, feel free to contact me or pass along my information. William J.
